I Grand Union |  Hotel "  HEDLEY, British Columbia  We have now entered upon the second year of the -war, and tire end  seems as far oil! as ever. No one imagined, a year ago, that hy September of  1915, Canada would have sent across  the Atlantic nearly one hundred thousand men with as many more to follow  ifnecessary. The magnificent enlistment, while primarily due to the loyalty of our people, has been in a large  measure,' made possible by the Canadian Patriotic Fund.,  -This greatest of all the national ben-  efacLors is now assisting twenty thousand families of men who have enlisted for overseas service. These men  have gorre forward with the full assurance that the people ot Canada will  see to it that during their- absence,  their wives, widowed mothers and little children shall be maintained in  comfort. We hear that the drain upon  the Fund is assuming large proportions, that to meet the needs of July  and August $700,000 was expended,  that the reserves are being materially  decreased and that the national Executive Committee now finds it necessary to make a further appeal to the  Canadian   Public.  There are many funds', most of them  worthy, but of them all the Patriotic  Fund is the one we cannot allow to  fail. It is the duty of the.Government  to arm, equip and maintain the troops.  Not a dollar do the Federal Authorities give tothe Patriotic Fund. This  work depends solely on the patriotism  and generosity of oirr own' people'  Thousands of brave men are fighting  bur battles, believing that we meant  what we..said when we told them as  they went forward:���������"Go and we will  care for the wife and kiddies." It  worrld be to our everlasting disgrace if  our pledge were broken.  The national organization, with  headquarters at'"' Ottawa and branches  or affiliated associations in every part  of the Dominion, is worthy of our  most generous support in the tremendous and evergrowing task that it has  undertaken,  Ottawa, Sept. 1st., 1915,  Hedley Golf Club  Annual Competition  Concert and fiance  Fanyell the Boys  Tuesday evening in tire Opera House  Hedley officially, said f.-irewell to the  boys of the- contingent who left here  recently to joln"the forces in -training  at Vernon.

EDMOND, Prop.  \    MINING NOTES     |  Yesteday closed the best month the  local mines have experienced for many  a. moon, here's that it continues.���������  News, Merritt, B. C,  A government report on mining conditions for the past month contains the  following:���������"Increased activity in metal mining was also apparent in British  Columbia. In addition to improved  conditions among the large mining  companies quite a number of small  mines which had ceased operations at  the beginning of the war resumed  work and were sending regular shipments to the smelter at Trail. Both  the Granby arrd Trail smelter busy"  A shipment of 17 tons of ore was  made last week from the Sally mine at  Beaverdell, to Trail Smelter by Colonel  Baker and George Hambly, says the  Grand Forks Gazette. Earlier in the  month James Drum shipped 4.0 tons  from the Sally to Trail. Sonre 150 tons  have been shipped from the property  this year to date. It is operated by  Mr. Drum, Messrs. Baker and Hambly  working a lease on part of the Sally  group. Former shipments from the  Sally ran around $1.80 to the ton, but  recent shipments are said to have gone  considerably more than this.  in aid of the funds for the wounded  soldiers, so the occasion was lipe for a  dance also and the combined events  made a most successful arrd pleasant  evening. .   -  At the concert .the.attendance was  not large as there was sonre misunderstanding as to the date and time. But  what the audience lacked in size it  certainly made up irr enthusiasm. '  To say that Madam- Bishop delighted her audience is to state it very  mildly indeed. They were simply entranced. From the beginning to the  finish her concert was a great success  and when she finally announced the  last number, the audience felt as  though a very pleasant sensation wtis  about to cease in their experience.  Her program was as follows:  "Spanish song," in Spanish', by Cham-  inade  "His Buttons are  Marked I. N. F."  "Orange Girl Song", Scodopole  Indian   songs,    "Papoose"   and   "My  Bark Canoe"  Poem by Pauline Johnson, "Canadian  Born."  "Aloha Oe in Hawaiian  "La Paloma" in Spanish  "Comin' thro the Rye"  "To an Angel" by Gene via .J. Bishop  The New York Herald says:���������There  is a dignity of bearing about her which  is in perfect accord with the highly classic powers that mark the excellent style  of her singing.   Her breadth of   tone,  easy gasp of  teachnical   difficulties,  faultless intonation and total  lack of  affectation causes her to   bring to our  remembrance  some  of  the    world's  greatest artists, and she loses nothing  in comparison with any.   This is   the  highest compliment that can  be   paid  her. ,  After the concert the room was  quickly cleared for dancing and the  scene which followed will long be remembered by Hedley people and those  who visited from out of town.  The orchestra supplied the music  and were relieved by the piano player  and individuals from time to time.  The crowd at no time was so large  that the floor was crowded and eveiy-  body reported it one of the most pleasant occasions of the year.  Wednesday morning the boys and  Madam Bishop accompanied by-Mrs.  Campbell, her secretary, made the  trip to Princeton to catch the boat for  Vornon, They were taken up in the  autos of G. P. Jones and F. H. French.  ho shall refer the point in doubt to the  match committee.  3. Each match shall consist of two  rounds of nine holes, the rounds to be  played'consecrrtrvely. If both rounds  are not played off on the sarrre day the  players shall arrange the time for the  second, round, but no player shall  practice between the time of finishing  the first round and starting second.  '4. All players'must hand in their  score cards, duly countersigned by  their opponent, with as little delay, as  possible.  All winners of the first round must  have their score cards handed to the  Secretary not later than October llth,  1915.'  Following   are   the    players    with  handicaps:  Barnes," H.

This  information is submitted to The News  by the new company's secretary Earl  C. Bates, of Columbus. Mr. Bates  announces that they have fullest confidence in the ability of that property  to make good when they start to mining, which, he says, "will no doubt be  in the near future."���������Chesaw News.   .  George Riddle, who had the misfortune to get on the wrong side of his  auto when the latter hit the ditch recently, is now well on the .road to recovery. The biggest trouble now is  swollen limbs, which are rapidly yielding to the care and attention of the  doctor.  J. C. Reilly, prospector, placer miner, old timer, now of the Tulameen  district, who can tell more about the  geology of the country than you read  in books, is in town for a few days.  He brought down some platinum  which he diposedof to good advantage  locally.  Tommy Rotherham, our local photographer, has on display in his window  some of the finest pictures ever produced in this locality. In addition to  the pictures of the contingent which  left recently to join the forces in training at Vernon, he has some photos of  Hamilton's garden. The picture itself  is exceptionally good but Tommy has  added, with tho deft touch of an artist,  the coloring necessary to bring out  the effects of the mass of flowers  which the garden presented late this  summer when the asters and gladiolas  were out in all their beauty. What  nicer souvenir could you select to send  to your friends, to show them some of  the glories of our beautiful Sunny  Similkameen?  The Universities of Canada have now  for sorrre tirrre been working loyally,  together to reinforce that gallant regi-'  ment the Princess Patricias Canadian  Light Infantry... Three Companies  have already gone over-sea, numbering  nearly 900 men and a fourth Company  is now under formation   at Montreal.  The University Companies are now ���������  known throughout the,.- length and  breadth of Canada, so that there is a  continuous flow of men of the' right  type to Montreal. Not only do such  men find entry to a famous regiment  but they are rapidly equipped and  trained arid sunt without delay oversea to England, where they are. com-  foitably billeted in huts .at an excellent err inp near the sea on ' the South  Coast of England. Morever the men  secure the great advantage of good  comradeship with congenial spirits of  similar tastes arrd arrtecedents.  The first Company under a notable  Officer, Captain Gregor Barclay, has  been declared by regular, Officers of  experience to be. second to none compared with any Company of any army  in the world.  The ' second Company was raised  over-stength in seven weeks by Captain G. McDonald and Captain Percy  Molson. Both companies are now in  France  The third company sailed eighty  over strength because the New'paper  publishersof Canada were good enough  to make know, through their columns  that the Company wa^ being*-fnriYreiT*"  This resulted in such a rush 'of recruits  that it was necessary to apply to the  Militia Council of Ottawa for a special  authority to increase the strength  from 250 to 330men. Each man before  embarkation writes'lo' a friend who is  a likely recruit and tells him of the  advantages of the Universities Company, so that even before the men  have disembarked rt- fresh company is-  asssembling on the AIcGill Campus at  Montreal.  Recruits are examined locally by  an Army Medical Officer sand are attested by a magistrate in the nearest  city, .after which an application is  made for transportation, which is  speedily furnished from Montreal.  This system is effective and rapid,  and free from red tape. There are in  nearly every City, representatives of  various'Universities who are always  ready to help forward the good work,  and to give information to men anxious to enlist.  The Regulations respecting enlistment pay and separation allowances  are precisely the same as those for  other Canadian troops.  At Montreal, the University rend  buildings for barracks, and the Campus  for Drill grouud. Affiliation with the  McGill Officers Training Corps is a  great benfit, and interesting tactical  work is carried orrt on the slopes of  Mount Royal.  There is competent instruction in  tactics, musketry, bayonet fighting  and trench making. The C. P. R. is  kind enough to lend their gallery  for  shooting practice. A machine gun is  available and signalling, now of immense important, is also taught.  All information can be obtained  from Capt. A. S. Eve, 3S2 Sherbrooke  St., West, the headquarters of the  successive companies.  The newspaper have proved themselves to be the most efficient means of  raising recruits, and every reader who  cannot himself go to the Front can  help in the present struggle by calling  the attention of his friend to this opportunity.  #7r7'i-i THE MEDLEY GAZETTE, OCT.  7.   1915  %h% tbdley  .s-.'.ao  . *.'.50  and  Similkameen'Advertiser.

While there is at the present  no indication or prospect of a  provincial election, there appears to bo some activity among  individuals who are seeking to  get the rolls made up.

But, much as wc favor prohibition, we believe it .would be  unwise and disastrous to force  the issue at the present unsettled era in the history of the province.  first day of December' next application  will bo made to the superintendent of  'Provincial police for renewal, of the  hotel licence to sell liquor by retail in  the hot.el known as the 'Central Hotel,  situate at Keremeos Center, in the  province of British Columbia.

Editorial Quotations  THANKSGIVING  There are no people on the  face of the globe who have  more 'occasion to be thankful,  than the British-born, whether  inthe British Isles or any of  her colonies.  At this season . of they year  when harvest is assured, when  winter's winds are forestalled,  when plenty abounds and the  only cloud is the cruel European  Avar, in which we are more than  conquerors, we should give  thanks.  Thankfulness is an inner feeling which cannot be contained  and gives expression in an outward demonstration or manifestation.    Let us   be thankful,  There will be the Annual  Thanksgiving Service in St.  John's church next Sunday  when there will be an opportunity for public thanksgiving.  The church should be crowded.  There is the big fact more vital than any other in regard to  the war, that Germany has suffered irreparable losses. Germany now lacks the reserves to  keep her armies at their present  maximum. High tide has been  reached. As weeks grow into  months Germany will become  absolutely and relatively weaker. She has done wonders, even  as France under Napoleon did  wonders, but no nation can continue forever to squander its  blood ... like water.���������New York  Globe.

JOHN JACKSON  Dated this 7th day of October, 1915,  NOTICE  PROHIBITION  While there is considerable  ��������� discussion on the question of  prohibition, there is little to indicate just how a plebiscite  would decide in the province at  the present time.  That the parties for and  against are both out for a decision is sure, however, but the  man who thinks he can guess  just how the vote would go,-at  this stage of the game,   might  And now comes a ��������� scientist  who tells us that there is very  little : difference between the  savage and the civilized ' man  after all; that the mental capacity of one is quite equal to that  of the other; the only difference  lying in the. direction in which  we exert that capacity. Two  years ago we might have pooh-  pooed Dr. Alfred Goldsborough  Mayer's statements, but we accept them today in the light of  what the swiftly passing events  of the war have brought us.  Germany has stood as one of  the highest types of civilization;  we would have hesitated a year  and a half ago to compare her  people with the Fijian.

There is quite a contrast between the  aerial fleets of the warring factions, as there is in the navies.

There is an extraordinary similarity' in the verdicts passed irr all times  orr the Germans as a r-ice.

"Of all the nations the German lies with the most scrupulosity and  detail,"���������Carlyle ' ,  ''Blessing is only for the meek and merciful; and a German cannot be  either; he does not understand even the meaning of the words. In that is the  intense irreconcilable difference between the French and German natures. A  Frenchman is selfish only when he is vile and lustful, but a German selfish in  the purest state of virtue and morality. A Frenchman is arrogant only in  ignorance; but no quantity of learning ever makes a German modest."���������Ruskin  "Every day shows that people can be at the same time both very learned and very stupid. Are not the Germans, for example, who all know how to  read and write, the most underhand and the most brutal people of Europe?  Have they not re-established the right of confiscation and conquest in order to  rob and despoil the vanquished without scruple ? How is that brought about?  Instead of being taught the love of humanity, liberty and justice, their heads  are filled with ideas of vengeance, rapine and dominion. Sooner or later Europe will hunt them down lrke a pack of wolves."-Erckmann-Chatrian, the  well-known writer of Alsatian stories in the last century.  "By far the greatest excitement and pride exists in Germany among the  proffessors, doctors and students���������they are extraordinarily arrogant.

SING LEE  Laundry, Contracting of all  . kinds, Ditch digging, Wood  Sawing, Clearing lana, Cooking and all kinds of Chinese  Labor.  Keremeos, B.C.  Editor, Hedley Gazette,  Hedley, B. C.  Regarding my clear cut cgrilling of  Christian Science, and proof of its  worthlessness and emptiness, and  moreover its audacity and wickedness  in claiming even the shadow and support from the Bible, Samuel Greenwood asserts.that I do not understand  Christian Science textbook.  The average christian may be ignorant concerning it. He hears only the  appeals it makes in the name of Christ,  is brought into daily contact with its  aggressiveness, and does not know how  to answer its subtilties. The unsaved  soul may be led astray and ruined by  it, unless some word of light and revelation be given him; but I have  brought forward the fundamental propositions of Christian Science analysed them, and over against them, placed the testimony of Holy Scripture;  showing how point by point Christian  Science denies the Bible, how the  Bible denies Christian Science, and  that between them there is indeed a  great gulf fixed.  Only blind, bigoted obstinacy makes  Mr. Greenwood affirm such a prejudice, and one day he may know a  great deal, when he acquires a knowledge of the immensity of his ignorance.  In his last letter, he calls salvation  a problem, evidence of his gross darkness, easily understood of course, as  Christian Science denies that Christ  died for the Salvation of men.  His admission of the unreality of  evil could not otherwise but justify  my clear statement, that "Christian  Science is a system of absolute immorality," and that cheating, swearing,  drunkenness and murder are characteristics of its teachings.  As to his allusion to its "Mission",  it has neither mission nor message to  the world, but delusion, since it denies  all the seqrrential christian doctrines,  such as justification, regeneration, resurrection of the body, second coming  of Christ and final judgement etc.  What can be said but that the Great  Hereafter,'at the final judgement, the  founder of Christian Science;, must  meet that Christ whose- actual death  and resurrection she denied, and answer for the souls whom she orrtangled,  and led away into hopeless perdition  through her satanically inspired  words. '   "  That God is all in all, or absolute cil-  ness, is a false resumption, as tho  Bible shows that he is not iu Satan,  or fallen angels nor unregenerate man.  The Bible makes God immi-nent in his  creation, yet distinct from and person- .  al to it, en throned in majesty and approached as Father, through faith in  the Son by the energy and power of'  the spirit.  As one set for thedefence of the gospel and called upon to declare the  whole council of God, I lift my voice-  and word against. I warn tliat it is  a pestilence, a fever, a miasma, a poison. ItisSatans masterpiece, Satans-  disguise, and the sure destruction of  every unwary soul who yields to it.  In describing it, and warning against  it. every symbol of evil may be used  every metaphor of iniquity, all thes-  collbcation of terms' known to human  language exhausted, and then, when  this has been done, not enough will  have been said, nor emphasis sufficiently given to* paint it, picture it denounce it and warn against it.  I call upon all to turn from this  evil thing which smiles and speaks  under its breath and, while it whispers  steals away that name which is above  every name, the name, which. guarantees forgiveness of sins, opens the  close shut grave, brings immortality  to light, illumens the way to Heaven  and the throne of God, gives peace  here and glory there, the name over  which augels sing, before which angels confess, and at whose mention  the whole universe must finally, bend  the knee���������the name which is above  every name, whether named in Heaven, or in earth or under the earth���������  the name of Jesus.  Turn I pray you from that pestilential arrd shameful thing which would  blot orrt the name, the person, the  work, and the.coming* glory of our  Lord Jesus Christ.  Turn from this thing which calling  itself Christian Science is neither scientific nor Christian, and beneath its  indecent defiance of science and its  treacherous betrayal of Christ, conceals the face of Antichrist and the  form of Satan.  To whom it may concern���������As I do  not deem the subject of Christian  Science worth time and attention, valuable paper and ink, I cease further  to discuss it.  R. G. Stewart ,
